Cherishing the Gospel

Mark Lauterbach's posts on Cherishing the Gospel are well worth a look. One of the posts gathered there is about a sermon he heard on Numbers 33. He recalls these words:
"...when God speaks of the places where he was faithful, he develops the details. When God writes about the places of failure, he speaks of his care and not their sin. He made this point -- God is forgetful of our sins. He does not summarize our lives as those moments of great transgression on our part. In our self-righteousness we make a monument to our sins and live in endless regret of them. In our pride, we make monuments to others sins and remind them of them. But God records his gracious care of us in our sin so that we see his mercy and not our evil."
